Nigerian Beach Soccer League Super 4 set to kick-off  


Four Beach Soccer clubs have arrived Kaduna for the 2024 Nigerian Beach Soccer League Super Four competition slated for Murtala Square Beach Soccer field, Kaduna between Thursday July 4 and Saturday July 6, 2024

Defending champions, Kebbi Beach Soccer club will tackle debutants Kebbi United Beach Soccer club in a local derby that serves as the opening match of the competition on Thursday, while Kada Beach Soccer club and Anambra Beach Soccer Warriors will slug it out in the second match of the opening day. 

The round robbin game continues on the second day to be concluded on the final day with the blockbuster tie between Kebbi Beach Soccer club and Kada Beach Soccer club on Saturday. 

Addressing the media on Tuesday, the President African Beach Soccer Union and National Coordinator Nigeria Beach Soccer League, Mr Mahmud Hadejia, said this year’s super four will be more exciting and tougher than the previous editions, while urging fans of the sand football not to ensure that they are at the venue to watch the matches and not wait to be told what happened.

“This is the second time that Kaduna is hosting the Super Four. When we started, Kaduna hosted and over the years everybody has been waiting and asking when are we going back to Kaduna. Kaduna state has done extremely well in terms of preparation and support for the events. We hope one day, the beach soccer court in Murtala Square Kaduna will host the African Cup of Nations and even the World Cup because it is one of the best pitches in Africa. 

“We need to appreciate the President of Nigeria Beach Soccer Federation Engr. Musa Nimrod for the support and hosting of the competition. The 2024 Nigerian Beach Soccer League season commences in April for the first round with five rounds of matches in Kebbi. Then we move to Nnewi in Anambra state for the second round where four teams qualified after 10 rounds of matches for the Super four, and two teams were eliminated,” he said.

On his part, Engr. Nimrod said Nigeria has not been participating in beach wrestling, beach handball, thus, “it is important that the country focus well on the beach soccer so that she can do better because beach soccer is a lovely game that helps to remove stress.”

The Permanent Secretary, Kaduna state Ministry of Sports, Alhaji Mukhtar Abdullahi, welcomed the participating teams to Kaduna state, noting that Kaduna is known for sports hosting and that the Senator Uba Sani administration “is committed to maintaining that standard because overtime sport have been found to be unifier and a tool for national cohesion.”
